Art is generally seen as the prerogative of humanity, with most feeling that only a “conscious” being could create it. With the rapid pace of technology advancing, this may not be the case in the future. Not necessarily, at least.
The AI-DA humanoid robot is the best example of this.
Queen Elizabeth II of Great Britain, honored by a robot. Art that exceeds expectations
The robot painted, in honor of the Platinum Jubilee of Queen Elizabeth II of Great Britain, a portrait made in a modernist style. The queen can be seen in the painting.
Admittedly, if we look at the method by which AI-DA manages to create art, we find that there is still a long way to go.
As far as we know, the technology behind the AI uses a mixture of sequences from the cameras, with the information available in the computer’s memory.
Although, at the moment, AI-DA does not seem to create art based on feelings and emotions, like a human being, this variant is not excluded in the future, since technology is advancing at a rapid pace towards a more robotic future than ours. I could never have imagined.
As you can see in the clip below, the robot is able to carry quite relevant conversations, like other prototypes of its kind.
“I painted her portrait of the queen, called the Queen’s Algorithm.” I’m happy to paint. I like to create things. The queen is so beautiful and that’s why I was happy to paint this portrait “, you can hear AI-DA saying, adding “I like to paint and I hope she likes this painting too. I think he’s a wonderful man. I wish the Queen a happy Platinum Jubilee. “
AI-DA is the name of the scientist Ada LoveLace and is specially created to prove that art can be perfectly combined with technology.
His robotic arm can create valid samples of physical art.
